    Not to step on any one's toes here, but can we have a different image for the group? Every time I see this thing I feel like I am about to look at kiddy porn or something.
  • Apple

    Not a fan of moe, eh Matt?
  • Matt

    Never seen it. I'm just saying the characters presented in their positions, with their body types making them appear younger, makes me feel like I am clicking a group for kiddy porn.

    Moe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moe_(slang)

    To borrow from Neko ewen on forumRPG net:

    The Japanese otaku subculture was originally more about sci-fi and giant robots, but at a certain point it got to be about having warm-fuzzy feelings for cute girl characters, a sensation called "moe". It ranges from the relatively innocent to lolicon stuff, but the core of it is fetishizing female characters who are in various ways emotionally non-threatening. There are a lot of popular moe characters who are underage, part-animal, androids, miniature, non-blood-related younger sisters, maids, etc. If a given anime is really strongly sexualizing underage girls--titles like Strike Witches or Kodomo no Jikan--it's most likely because it's aimed at moe otaku.
  • Matt

    Then yes, I am not a fan of moe at all.
  • Skycomet the Fallen Angel

    No problem Matt... is that pic any better?
  • Matt

    There we go, much better. Thank you. now my conscious is clear. :)

  • Apple

    Are you sure it's "safe" to show Karin here, Skyrocket? ^_~
  • James Jones

    been watching and reading kodomo no jikan, a manga/anime about three disturbed grade school girls. lots of sexual references. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GSq2AYv59k
  • Apple

    Oh James.... now you've done it. ^^;;
  • James Jones

    apple: trust me it could be a lot worse than it is.
  • Skycomet the Fallen Angel

    XD! COME ON APPLE!! Karin is rated PG13! LOL! Aren't we all high schoolers or adults here anyhow! lol - it's not like I'd show any of the anime pornos or anything.... lol
  • Matt

    I don't understand the taste for animes that center themselves around kids that are in school.
  • Skycomet the Fallen Angel

    Matt- A note... you might want to be a LITTLE more specific! A lot of the "kids in school" are in HIGH SCHOOL!! Which is FAR less perverted... don't you think?
  • James

    Just got through with Kaze No Stigma. Very very good, but it's sad that there won't be a second season. (creator died)
